Twin River hawks casino plan

February 8, 2011

LINCOLN – Twin River opened a new campaign to win full casino operations Tuesday night with a state-of-business address by the chairman of its Board of Directors, John E. Taylor, during the Northern Rhode Island Chamber of Commerce’s annual dinner at the redeveloped former greyhound park facility.
Taylor gave his pitch for a statewide referendum on Twin River’s expansion to full casino gaming after Gov. Lincoln Chafee spoke briefly to the gathering and said he was “looking forward” to working with Taylor in the future “to make sure this facility stays viable.”

Some things I think I think:
It was nice to see North Smithfield’s Corinne Coia gain some local recognition for her productive basketball career at Lincoln School.

She passed 1,000 career rebounds earlier this season.

What does the tenth-grader expect to do for the encore?
How about cop two individual titles at the Feb. 19 state championship and possibly break a state record by a certain U.S. Olympian, who makes Rhode Island her home.
